Best Fast Chargers for Amazon Fire HD 8 (2022)

When Amazon updated its insanely popular Fire HD 8 tablet back in 2020, it added a long-overdue feature—a modern USB Type-C port—to it as well. The 2022 revision comes with slightly better performance than its predecessor, and the USB-C port can now be used to fully charge the tablet's battery in under 2.5 hours. But the charger Amazon ships with the Fire HD 8 is a pretty slow one. So, if you don't want to wait for hours on end for your new tablet to get charged up, consider getting one of these fast chargers for Fire HD 8. While some of these are well-suited to small devices such as smartphones and tablets, others can even charge laptops.

These are the best fast chargers for Amazon Fire HD 8

While it certainly can't compete with something like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, the 2022 revision of Amazon's Fire HD 8 is still an extremely well-rounded device that—thanks to a bunch of useful updates over each generation—continues to be ranked among the best Android tablets available out there. Among its many highlights is a modern USB-C port, which allows the built-in battery at speeds that would simple have been impossible to achieve with the archaic microUSB port that previous-generation models had. That being said, you still need a fast charger to get those speeds since Amazon bundles the tablet with a measly 5W wall adapter.

Our top vote goes to good ol' reliable Anker's 511 (also known as PowerPort III) Nano charger, which comes with a 20W power output and can charge not only the Fire HD 8 (2022), but also most modern devices like smartphones and wireless earbuds. But if you want that comes with its own cable, we suggest getting EGK's 15W wall charger and USB-C to USB-C cable combo offering.

Then there's Anker PowerDrive PD 2, which is something of a must-have if you often go on road trips and take all your devices with you. With one USB-C port and another USB-A port, it can juice up just about every device of yours while you focus on your journey. Another worthy mention is Hrepeo's dual-port charger, which comes with a USB-C and a USB-A port and gives you a combined 65W power output, sufficient for not only laptops and smartphones, but even laptops.
